June 2018


June 19, 2018 - June 22, 2018

https://youtu.be/aB8YxX63O7Q Tech is transformative if you’re an optimist, disruptive if you’re a pessimist … or on the wrong end of change.

TOA is also one of the biggies, drawing 20,000-plus over the course of the four days and 150 speakers. “Names” this year include Klarna co-founder Sebastian Siemiatkowski, Stefan Thomas from cryptocurrency Ripple and Frank Thelen from Freigeist Capital.

  https://youtu.be/z8D7ZENtxCE WEBIT.FESTIVAL, 26 & 27 JUNE IN SOFIA, BULGARIA This is more a gathering of government officials, EU policymakers and corporate executives than it is a typical startup/tech event.

July 2018


July 3, 2018 - July 5, 2018

https://vimeo.com/154872095 We have mixed feelings about PIRATE Summit. Billed as “Europe’s craziest startup conference,” it’s kind of a cutesy concept that dates back to Steve Jobs flying a pirate flag from the building where his team was working on Macintosh. But we decided to include it again this year because organizers are, to quote the website, “going back to the roots.” The roots being the idea that if you attract lot of innovative startups, investors will come. First, the event…

    https://youtu.be/vg8wxRtxqkQ London – Monet & Architecture: Now through 29 July, the National Gallery on Trafalgar Square in London has a show illustrating how important architecture was to Monet’s work.

November 2018


November 5, 2018 @ 8:00 am - November 8, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

https://vimeo.com/252902649 This is the Big One Lisbon stole from Dublin, and it’s changed Portugal’s digital fortunes. Web Summit bills itself as “the largest tech summit in the world.” More a right of passage for digital types than a utilitarian “meet the right people” event. Because who are you going to meet in a crowd of 70,000? Well, that’s the point, isn’t it? You never know. The function, if you will, of Web Summit is to bring together the most influential…
